Jo was invited to speak at the Hoarding & Self Neglect conference in Kingston-upon-Thames on the 15th of November 2018.
Jo was accompanied by Lynn Howells, who was asked to speak about the challenges of her hoarding behaviours. Lynn has been instrumental in raising awareness of hoarding as a mental health disorder and helps to run the Hoarding Support Group in Bracknell.
The conference was attended by over 80 delegates ranging from representatives from the fire services, social services, the housing sector alongside private enterprises and voluntary agencies.
The feedback was very well received and documented below is a testimonial from one attendee:
I just had to write to thank you both personally for sharing your experiences, knowledge and expertise. What an amazing, inspirational and emotional experience. Thanks for keeping it REAL.
Your website is extremely useful, especially the resources.
